been shot at a harris county college. i've got fbi profiler clint van zant standing by. clint, this is the second time that we have been on air since newtown where literally we have had breaking news during a conversation on gun legislation. i was just talking to congressman chris van hollen and we break in with news regarding this shooting and waiting to get information in texas and it was, i believe, just last week or maybe two weeks ago, again, in the middle of a conversation on gun legislation and there was a shooting in california. right now, we don't know much about what's happening here. when's happened i should say here but police are saying, clint, multiple people have been shot. >> yeah. you know, what i'm afraid we're seeing is there are a number of people who because of pending gun legislation for one thing are buying guns. i was at a local sporting goods store where i live in virginia, and people were stacked up two deep at a gun counter buying guns and the ammunition had almost been cleaned -- this is a large store. and the ammunition had been cleaned off almost all of

? >> there was discussion going on afterwards but the -- once the investigation started the fbi spoke to them before we spoke to them. other than other people in tripoli, which i think you're talking about washington, right? >> the point i'm making a very simple phone call to the individuals would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest prior to this. this attack started at 9:40 p.m. benghazi time and it was an assault. i appreciate the fact you called it an assault. but i'm going back to then ambassador rice five days later going sunday shows what i would say purpose fully misleading the public. i appreciate the fact of the transparency of this hearing. why weren't we transparent to that point in time? >> first of all, senator, i would say that once the assault happened and once we got our people rescued and out, our immediate most concern was number one taking care of their injuries. as i said, i still have a ds agent at walter reed seriously injured. getting them into frankfurt to get taken care of. the fbi going over immediately to start talking to them. we did not thi

searching for a possible second shooter and also told the fbi and atf responding to the scene to assist with the investigation. janet shamlian joins us on the phone from houston. what is the latest? >> hello, s.e. sounds like an altercation that turned in to gun fire between two individuals. the scene we have is three people are shot. we may have a fourth person who was the victim of a heart attack. we have one person in custody. there is a lot of talk about another shooter. there's a search actively at this point for another shooter that's unconfirmed at this point. but this campus of some 18,000 students is sprawling. it is surrounded by a wooded area that leads in to a neighborhood. and right now, harris county constables aided by a number of law enforcement agencies are fanned out throughout that wooded area. looking for potentially another gunman. students have been told to shelter in place. many have already fled the campus but we're to believe many others are just locked down in the rooms they were in when the gun fire started. >> janet, it is our best understanding at this point

be held accountable? >> time is running out. when i talk to the fbi, had the clear sense the game was over. now statute of limitations is running. although there are some instances where it extends as much as ten years. so there is still time to prosecute. and just recently, we've seen the new york attorney general file a lawsuit against jpmorgan, bear stearns for fraud. they didn't name individuals. they didn't target individuals. and it's a civil case. but the attorney general, eric sneiderman thinks that perhaps there could be in the future some criminal charge s brought. but we haven't seen it yet. >> this could be the tip of the iceberg, this documentary. it's going to be an eye-opener to a lot of people. a lot of people will be wondering why no one is in jail. martin smith, we'll have you back after this plays a few times. i think you'll get a loft lot of reaction out of it. that's "the ed show." the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> good evening, my friend. it was really fun to cover the inauguration in washington with you. >> yes, it was. but my legs were getting sor

in any way. that is not the weight of the evidence right now, but i think until the fbi completes its investigation, we're not going to know all the reasons why these people showed up with weapons and stormed our compound. >> well, secretary clinton, is ambassador rice's statement that benghazi was a copy cat of the cairo demonstrations factually accurate? >> well, it turned out nod not to be because the cairo demonstrations were not heavily armed. and we did get host nation security support. so there were differences. but again, i would say that secretary rice conveyed information that had been provided by the intelligence community. >> i'm not trying to go into the process. right now i'm just trying to determine what the truth is best we know at this time. is ambassador rice's statement that benghazi was of course prompted by an anti-muslim video in the united states. >> i'd have to go back to my first statement and say we don't know all of the motivations so i don't want to give a sweeping answer to what caused these men to come out that night and attack the compound. >> all ri

been placed under monitoring by the tunisian government. there are other suspects that the fbi are both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with director muller which was just a few days ago, he went to libya. he went to tunisia. he beliefs that the investigation is proceed iing. i know the fbi has been on the hill doing briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee. but i certainly hope that the fbi is able to investigate, identify, and hold responsible those who waged this attack against us. and i think based on their work, they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> okay. my understanding is the tunisian person who was held was released by a judge there. and that person has been released. so basically we don't really know at this point who did it. >> well, congressman, i confirmed with director muller who was just in tunisia meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance. and forbidden to leave. director muller told me that tha

released a key suspect. poor libyan cooperation hampered the fbi's investigation. success here is a matter of justice. and it's also a matter of signalling to militants that there is no place for them to hide if they attack u.s. personnel. i will now turn to the distinguished ranking member, mr. engle for his opening remarks. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman for holding this important meeting. i hope we can use this as an opportunity to seriously examine the steps we need to take to prevent a repeat of the tragedy in benghazi rather than engaging in gotcha politics that make it more difficult to achieve this bipartisan goal. as the new rinking member, let me say on behalf of this committee, we would like to welcome you back and glad you are feeling better. this will likely be your final appearance before our committee and i want to take the opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your outstanding and tireless efforts to represent our country in the international community. i have no doubt you will continue to serve our nation in some capacity as you have for so many y

attacks in kenya and tanzania, the fbi put bin laden on their ten most wanted list. secretary of state madeleine albright escorted home the bodies of 10 of the 12 americans who were killed in those attacks. since 1970, not a year has gone by where there has not been some sort of violent attack against u.s. diplomats and diplomatic facilities around the world. not all of them are deadly, but they happen all the time, year after year after year. and nobody is more aware of that than whoever is the secretary of state at the time. and our secretary of state right now is hillary clinton, who was on capitol hill today to testify about the latest deadly attack on u.s. diplomats, the attack in benghazi. >> benghazi joins a long list of tragedies for our department, for other agencies, and for america. hostages taken in tehran in 1979, our embassy and marine barracks bombed in beirut in 1983, khobar towers in saudi arabia in 1996, our embassies in east africa in 1998, consulate staff murdered in jetta in 2004, the khost attack in 2012, and many others. i could give you a long list of attacks av

. >> i believe that drk i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees, i assume members or staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond. and i think what the president clearly said is we will respond and we will bring those to justice. and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good example that it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decembimated and in li of the recent terrorist acts tists we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you character that as al qaeda has been decimated? >> core al qae

doing things like firing people at the fbi. because veteran spending is going to increase automatically. president obama wants to spend more on education. that's tough. so these cuts go into effect, but they might find very quickly that it's very difficult to actually implement them. >> last thing here to you, chris, we're hearing about a couple of senators not going to be -- not going to seek re-election. talking about harkin, saxby chambliss. chambliss cited the gridlock in washington as part of the reason him wanting to step away. get your reaction to both of these men not seeking re-election. and also what are your thoughts on chambliss actually citing what's happening in washington as part of the reason for him wanting to get out of there? >> i think what we're seeing right now is a generational change in washington. chambliss and harkin and guys like that are part of that change. and it's interesting particularly in chambliss's case as you point out he does cite the partisan gridlock. but he's also part of that old republican guard. he's very close friends with house

back to you very soon. let's bring in former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, we heard this may have been some kind of dispute between two individuals with some being caught up in the cross fire. what are you learning from your sources? >> well, what i have heard unofficially, martin, and you and i know how confusing the reporting is in these stories initially, was that at least one of the two shooters allegedly had a weapon in a backpack and another had what has been described as semiautomatic pistol. at least one of the shooters, perhaps one with the semiautomatic pistol, is alleged to have emptied the magazine. now, depending on the caliber of that weapon, that could be anywhere from 5 to at least 15 rounds under the current standard of magazines that could be carried for pistols like that. and i think that one of the terrible statistics you just referenced, martin, that now the clock has been reset. so far in 2013 we have had four shootings on college campuses. martin, in all of 2012, there were only about five. we've got four and we're only three weeks into this year. >> no

know, the fbi is still on the case. all of the reforms suggested by the arb are important. plus this high-threat index that the state department is implementing. john kerry must make the security of our personnel abroad a very high priority. but let's understand, these people, these magnificent heroes who work in our state department sign up to put their lives on the line, if necessary, to project diplomacy and hopefully win hearts and minds around the world. and that is important. we can't just hunker down and live in bunkers in the united states of america. >> senator rand paul who has expressed interest in running for president in 2016 said hillary clinton would have been fired over the benghazi attack if he were in charge. take a look. >> i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> cu

investigate behavior, where there was very little evidence of wrongdoing. the fbi and the justice department had been reviewing all these e-mails, as part of their investigation of general petraeus. and they threw them all over the pentagon. the pentagon goes, geez, what do we do now? and they decided, gosh, i guess we better investigate them. so the inspector general at the pentagon was ordered by secretary panetta from his plane, he's traveling and says, gosh, we better do the investigation. so that's been rolling along. and there was never a thought to be evidence of real wrongdoing. general allen has been held up. he's our commander in kabul. he's a very fine general. and so it's good that this finally ended today. >> so what we've got, 9:00 eastern time, in about 15 minutes, the benghazi hearings, and secretary of state hillary clinton. what can we expect? >> this is going to be a tough swan song for secretary clinton. she's been such a tireless secretary of state, and she's going to be held to account by republicans, who are still upset about what happened in benghazi, where four ameri

patrol than to the dea,atf and the fbi together. so, we have a foundation to stand on. now we have to address family reunification. the young people who we have thrown to the wayside getting education and not being able to use it, being brilliant and not being able to show it. i think america will say enough is enough and we'll work to create jobs for everyone, the unemployed and those who are coming in to the system. i don't think lamar smith, again, a good friend, and other republicans, are going to be able to stand up against the wave of support that will be coming to once and for all resolve this immigration system that's broken and, tam on the, it is not amnesty. we are demanding a duty, an obligation, a responsibility. we are telling them, and they want that. that they have to give in order to get. that's a whole different system from amnesty. >> congresswoman, thank you for being here. >> thank you. >>> the president arrived in las vegas and minutes away from delivering the first public remarks on immigration reform since that group of bipartisan senators released their plan
